Enamel Mug Organizer

This project was one that came to me in the 
middle of the night.

You know, those hours you spend looking up at the ceiling because your husband is snoring.

Well, believe it or not, that is when I "dream up" some of these projects.

Last night I was thinking about the 3 beautiful enamel mugs I had that were too large to use as actual mugs.

This morning, using screws and glue I attached these 3 
enamel mugs to a reclaimed piece of wood.

One up and 2 sideways make a great organizer.

Those cup handles make perfect towel hooks.

In the kitchen it holds pretty table linens.

In the bathroom it can hold a towel and bathroom supplies.

The top cup is perfect for a plant.

In the craft room it is great for holding supplies.

I added chalkboard stickers to a mug for labeling.

  3. I absolutely love this! It's perfect. I love that you put the handles facing in different directions to give more options for storage - my favorite is the towel hanging from the middle cup!

    1. Hi Bhavna! I actually drilled holes through the mugs and attached them with screws. You need to use tape over the hole you are drilling so it doesn't chip the enamel mug. Good luck!
